Why didn't you turn on the Sherriff siren and call out New Republic as poor sourcing?  Poor sourcing usually gets you uptight.  Or is this the part of hypocritical Sho?

Because i paid very little attention to the thread overall?

Odd board cop schtick by those who complain almost daily about board cop schtick.

He uses ESQUIRE to support his points.   That should tell you enough.  

It was referring to a study from a respected professor.  I could have referenced the original article on WashPo or one from the NYT and you would have had the same reaction.  Id bet you didnt read the article or the actual study.

 

Alsi, they rate high for factual reporting.  Unlike PJMedia.

According to one right leaning poll.  Thats called an outlier.

Polls matter again I guess?

Your one sided spamming isn’t worth the time.  Especially after your egregious BLM hypocrisy. Sorry. Good luck :fishing: but most in here see right through you.

Project Veritas has recordings that should speak for themselves.

Nothing Project Veritas does speaks for itself.

Wikipedia on Project Veritas: "Project Veritas is an American far-right[37] activist group founded by James O'Keefe in 2010.[41] The group produces deceptively edited videos[24] of its undercover operations,[16] which use secret recordings[17] to allege misconduct and corruption in mainstream media organizations and progressive groups.[49] Project Veritas uses entrapment[23] to generate bad publicity for its targets,[2] and has propagated disinformation[14] and conspiracy theories[56] in its videos and operations."

With plenty of details about their untrustworthiness, like: "Project Veritas continued to promote the postal worker's claims of fraud after they had been discredited.[193]"

I'm not at all ruling out the idea that CNN is horrible. That would be totally unsurprising. I'm just saying that you shouldn't form that judgment, or any judgment, based on anything from Project Veritas.

Just to clarify, are you saying you're "not at all ruling out the idea" because you don't have enough evidence that it is?

I have no opinion about CNN except that all TV news seems to be terrible. I can't figure out why anyone watches it.

I think CNN generally does a good job reporting the news.  The opinion shows that come on in the evening are tiresome, as they are for basically all cable news channels. 

The people most prone to complaining about media bias also seem to consume some of the most biased and misleading media.  I can't wrap my head around it.

You don’t debate, you spew the same one sided talking points. Sorry man, we see through you and the other aliases you use, not worth it.

This is completely false, but even for the  30% or so of Americans that think the election results were tainted, you should remember that 7% of Americans think chocolate milk comes from brown cows.

And 50% believed that Russian Hookers peed on Trump and he actively colluded with Russia.  What's your point?

I don't know anyone who watches TV news unless there is a major event on like an election or a contested Supreme Court nomination.   I certainly don't believe I can have a serious discussion with someone who gets a majority of their information from Fox or CNN.  It seems weird that so many people in this forum seem to watch TV news on a regular basis.  Same with folks forming opinions based on Project Veritas or Gateway Pundit.

Trying to claim something factual by what a percentage of Americans believe is beyond pointless.

Veritas is destroying the Fake News factory at CNN.  Clear vindication for Trump.  

Veritas only destroys themselves...and the laughable nature of hyping up veritas while calling something else fake news factory.

Vindication?  In what way is that vindication?

Stop it.  It’s on video. CNN hasn’t tried to deny it so why are you running spin for them?

Its not spin to rightfully claim that Veritas is a fraud.

ABC News now reporting on it.

I'm aware of what PV does, but, unless the hired a body double it's pretty clear who the CNN guy was and difficult to splice out context while they are walking around like that. 

But, my point was different than that, people with open minds would consider any evidence presented, not trip over who is reporting it.

If it's Project Veritas "reporting" it, the problem is that they've cried wolf a number of times already. That's part of the evidence that people with open minds should consider.

O'Keefe just tweeted out, "if it bleeds, it leads."   The fact that he's able to quote a decades old cliché to describe his giant scoop sort of shows that it isn't much of a story.   News shows sensationalize stories to get ratings?   I'm shocked.

Since Bladerunner finds my post hilarious, I will add that I also think Fox News generally does a good job reporting the news.

I think Fox and CNN do a decent job with the news as it is occurring but it doesn't take very long for them to begin slanting it in the direction of their bias and when the talking heads in the evening begin it becomes unbearable.  All you have to do is see who they bring on as their guests and "experts".  They don't even attempt to hide the bias.

It is all understandable though, I mean it is a business and they are giving their audience what they want.

Right. If you have 100’s of posts in the RUSSIA! thread and claim everything Veritas produces is a fake, then you’re not really open minded.

If you make that statement with no context of the posts made in that thread...you aren’t being very honest about any of it.

If you refuse links from Washington Post, NYT...even Esquire, yet believe Veritas...I don’t think that is a sign of being open minded either.

Isnt Muarile the one who once said we could police our own thread?  (of course that never had any teeth because the other mods dont report to him, all it did was get those that listened to him suspended) 

And now he comes out in support of the Source Sherriff?

Please make your posts about the subject and not about the source or posters.  It kills honest discourse.  TIA.
